The right clothing

You should make sure that you are also packing some semi-formal clothing, when you are going to dine out at restaurants. There are some restaurants that don’t allow people to dine in their normal, everyday beach wear.

Comfortable shoes

You might want to pack in more formal looking shoes than comfortable shoes, but this isn’t recommended. Most of the places in Gambia aren’t made for heals. Especially, if you are active and doing a lot of sightseeing.

If you are going to only pack in heels, then you are going to regret it on the first day of your sightseeing. It is always better to pack in a pair of heels, one pair of sneakers and one pair of informal, comfortable shoes. Then, you know that you are prepared for anything.

Hat and sun tan lotion

It doesn’t matter from which country you are coming from. The one thing that you need to know is that the sun is hot and can become really dangerous if your body isn’t used to the heat. This is why you should make sure that you have a sunhat that you can wear when you are outdoors.

If you don’t have a sunhat, then you don’t need to worry, you will find one in Gambia. Something that you should bring with you is a high-quality sun tan lotion that your skin is used to. You don’t want to enter Gambia without skin protection.

Insect repellent

Because of the heat and the tropical destination that Gambia is, there will always be some insects that might make your nights a bit hard and uncomfortable. This is why another must have is a high quality insect repellent that you can use against insects like mosquitos. They can be a lot, especially during the summer time.
